    I haven't seen the episode yet and won't have time to do it now, so I will hitch my wagon to merrywidow's star and go with the twins (whoever they are).

    Not picking the Jersey Tools precisely so that if they stay, I'll get something out of it. Same with Brendon and Rachel.

    Gah, I guess I'll go with the clowns.

    I missed a lot of the first episodes, so I'm just going to go with the herd and pick the clowns.

    I'm going to go with the clowns because they're the only team I've ever seen with backpacks and suitcases with rollers. They can't last but another week or 2 with all of that paraphernalia.

    My method worked well for the "Rank 'Em" format. I would read the team's bios from the CBS website and also watch any and all pre-race interviews. It gives me an idea of who they are, how quick can they think, and mostly reveal what their strength are but most importantly what their weaknesses are. It sounds lame because you can't know everything from an interview but I'm good at "reading" people (not in a psychic way, it's different). That and also the fact that a while ago you started to allow us to post our predictions after the first episode airs, I would try and guess what kind of edit a team is getting (winner, powerhouse, annoying bickering couple, team that messes up a lot, etc).

    I can usually tell which team is going to be the season's powerhouse. I knew from the moment season 5 started that Colin would be someone I would never ever forget. Of course back then I did not know that "my ox is broken" would happen and, well, that certainly helped him become one of the most memorable contestants in reality show history. But apart from IT, he really was one of the best ever and I just knew it when I first saw him.

    So anyway, for this season I barely know who the teams are and haven't read their bio or seen pre-race interviews. I simply don't have the time or motivation. So that's why I'm out of "shape"

    Well I was going to go for the Clowns but if they are out, that shoots down almost half the Suicide V participants. So I will try playing the opposite strategy and pick someone I think might make final 3.

    If the Hicks go out, I won't say anything.

    But I will be thinking it .

    Due to circumstances beyond my control, I almost left this too late. Anyway...I'll go along w/the pack and pick the clowns for the reason someone else said. Never have I seen a team on TAR w/suitcases on rollers *and* backpacks. That's going to cause more problems than help.

    Heads up for Canadians....Check your local listings, as CTV's showing TAR tonight at 7pm EST due to they having the Cdn rights to the Oscars Ceremony. Just mentioning it for those who might not have heard.

    ^ Actually, AE, that is a heads-up to EVERYONE, as the entry deadline would be [/ is now] 7 PM ET versus the expected 8 PM ET.

    Go Clowns cause if you go down, you're taking a bunch with you.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    I'd meant to replay the "this season on ..." clip to comfort myself that I did, indeed, see Bopper & Pukey in three or so scenes. If they're gone tonight, I'll - yes - BLAME CANADA! for my suicide.

    But, I think this will be a "shock" elimination ... meaning anyone but the Clowns or the Hicks, I guess.

    But, as I needed to go there after all to provide a nicknames KEY for you all, I'll let you slide by.

    Bah! Blame Canada! I was going to pick Clowns and was waiting for Prancey. Oh well.

    I'll take submissions until the US airing, as long as y'all promise you didn't peak at PBP. No problems. Got to trust people, right?

    Then I have to find something else to irrationally blame on Prancer.
